Meet the All Stars - Angelo Sosa

Angelo made it all the way to the Singapore finale but lost to fellow competitor Kevin Sbraga after falling ill. Considered one of the cockiest chefs in his season's kitchen, we have a feeling that won't be the case this time around.

Angelo, who owns Sosa Consulting Group, has worked with some of the best chefs and restaurateurs in the world. Early in his career, he met Jean-Georges Vongerichten who became his mentor, and went on to work for him at Jean Georges, Dune, and Spice Market, where he served as Executive Sous Chef. Shortly thereafter, he was invited by Alain Ducasse to create a special seasonal menu at his Paris restaurant Spoon Food & Wine, the first American to receive such an honor. Angelo, who also consults on the menu for Buddakan, the Stephen Starr hotspot restaurant in NYC, always has salt, Japanese fish sauce, cinnamon, green cardamom, and lily bulbs handy in the kitchen.
